Each year, we gather feedback from each participating school and use it to develop and improve the project.
We are constantly looking at way to update the project, as a result of feedback gathered over the years we now deliver all our project content and teaching material on-line. Our aim for this year is enable easier uploading and blogging on the site for pupils.
Year-specific project feedback can be found on our newsletter page, but here are a few testimonials:
“Clyde in the Classroom has been the highlight of the year for Primary 5 children at Millersneuk for the last 10 years. It truly is an amazing interdisciplinary project which inspires and motivates pupils and staff alike. The children are captivated as carers of the trout, learning new skills in Social Studies, Science, Numeracy & Mathematics and Health & Wellbeing. This project is Curriculum for Excellence at its best!” - Head Teacher, Millersneuk Primary
